QB Cody Thomas' 7 TDs power Colleyville Heritage past Denton Guyer
SOUTHLAKE — Quarterback Cody Thomas fired a 19-yard touchdown pass to Jonny Joe to give Colleyville Heritage its first lead with 10:37 left in the game, and Heritage added two more fourth-quarter scores en route to a 54-38 win over Denton Guyer.
A 56-yard interception return by Jordan Jones set up another Thomas-to-Joe scoring strike from 5 yards out before Thomas applied the finishing touch with a 43-yard touchdown run.
Guyer (0-2) led 14-0 in the first quarter on a pair of Jerrod Heard touchdown runs and 31-21 at the half before Heritage (2-0) came roaring back behind Thomas, who finished 30-of-41 for 363 yards and five touchdowns.
Daniel Farrington and Nathan Crouch were Thomas’ favorite targets, each with a touchdown and more than 100 yards receiving.
Thomas also rushed for 71 yards and two scores, while Connor Davis had 106 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Heard led Guyer with 142 yards rushing and four touchdowns. He also completed 15-of-27 passing attempts for 213 yards.
He engineered a 13-play, 78-yard scoring drive with the opening kickoff, including a 17-yard run and 3-of-3 passing as Guyer took an early 7-0 lead.
Domenic Pickering’s fumble recovery put Guyer in business again at the Heritage 43 with 4:03 left in the quarter. Richard Whitaker’s 20-yard run on the next snap keyed a six-play drive that resulted in Heard’s second touchdown on a six-yard run.
Thomas finally got the Heritage offense moving late in the first quarter, completing passes of 19, 11 and 19 yards to Farrington to set up Davis’ two-yard touchdown run at 11:36 of the second quarter.
